comment What consititutes a “complete interruption” between talis katan and gadol?
@msh210 I don't see how your edits helped with Daniel's comment. The practice you cite, while tangentially related, is not part of an answer to this question.

comment What consititutes a “complete interruption” between talis katan and gadol?
@Daniel Isn't your question backwards? The talis katan comes first (IME at least). You say a bracha before doing a mitzva, and if something interrupts, you say a new bracha later on a new mitzva.

comment Is there a way to expand a canvas Sukkah?
I disagree that it is moot. For those who live in cities without Eiruvin (or don't hold of the Eiruvin) this issue is very significant as Shabbat of Sukkot is the one time of year when you most need to be able to carry outside.

comment food containers - why is hechser needed?
@RabbiMichaelTzadok Perhaps unfortunately true, but that doesn't make it right. I do hope they made it clear to the companies that this was a marketing decision, not a Jewish law one.

Without a source this isn't a very useful answer, as we don't know who you are! Nothing personal...

@ShmuelBrin Because that would be mean. They should explain that shirts don't need certification (assuming that is the case) and not take money from people who don't know any better.

Letting something liquid sit in a container for 24 hours is kavush ("pickled") and can transfer taste as well sometimes.

@Ali If you speculate after he does, that brings us twice as far from the truth.

comment Was Rambam affected by Islam?
How do you know the 13 principles were inspired by the 6 articles? How do you know Mishneh Torah aimed to parallel Hadith sciences? Your cited link does not support that Rambam was criticized for trying to introduce Islamic methods. Your paragraphs starting "the above" is pure speculation on your part. Hence there is nothing in here that is sourced that answers the question, and it is full of speculation. -1
